Late 19th century hand painted Coalport dessert set consisting of 39 pieces. The set is decorated in one of their popular "Japan" patterns.
The Japan patterns were originally produced at Coalport in 1800-15 during the John Rose period. They were beloved for the richness of their impressive decoration; deep underglaze cobalt blues, overglaze reds and greens, and highlighted with gilt embellishments. These patterns became popular in the late 18th and 19th centuries because they emulated the earlier Japanese Imari styles. With their rich ornamentation and timeless style, they are still as popular and hotly collected today as in earlier centuries.
This large complete set is in excellent condition, perfect for cabinet display, with very little to no gilt or paint loss. Four of the cups and saucers are not pictured.
